There are places in the world where time appears to have stood still. One of them is Mea Shearim in Jerusalem, which was founded two hundred years ago by Jewish immigrants from Eastern Europe. The inhabitants, ultra-orthodox Jews, also called Haredim, are still keeping their old customs. Czech photographer Eliska Blazkova spent eight years with documentation of their daily life. In the book Haredim I wrote an interview with Eliska, where she explains how she became so close to this community. The book was published by Czech publisher Nablizko and it is Czech-English version.
